Parents, though we may not want to, it is our job to regulate the amount of time our kids spend online each day. We need to make sure our children have time for other valuable activities: Eating regular & healthy meals, reading, homework, writing, physical activities, extracurricular activities, etc.โฃ

If not, these are just ๐˜š๐˜–๐˜”๐˜Œ of the negative effects too much screen time can have on your children:โฃ
